Rating: C+ -- Though Penn and Hutton perform admirably, the film fails to be interesting. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Dec 5, 2005
A clever, poignant spy film that avoids formulaic action in favour of human drama. Both leading characters are carefully drawn and it's down to skilful performances that their plight grows increasingly absorbing. Full Review

Hutton succumbs firstly to a thin role, and secondly to the film's lack of any strong viewpoint about its leading men. As usual Schlesinger is more than half in love with what he might be satirising. Full Review

...Timothy Hutton and Sean Penn are superb...
Variety
Jan 23, 1985
Rating: 3.5/5 -- It's a watchable, likely accurate recitation of facts, with two outstanding performances. But in the case of the Falcon and the Snowman, the truth we don't see onscreen may be stranger, and stronger, than the historical fiction that has been created. Full Review
The Film Yap

A very curious though effective entertainment, a scathing social satire in the form of an outrageously clumsy spy story told with a completely straight face.

Product Description:

Based on an actual incident, THE FALCON AND THE SNOWMAN is a tale of espionage about two upper-middle class kids who, in 1977, became spies for the Soviet Union. Disillusioned with the American government, a drop-out seminary student, Christopher Boyce (Timothy Hutton), begins stealing classified information from his workplace. With the help of his boyhood friend, strung-out cocaine addict Daulton Lee (Sean Penn), Boyce begins selling government secrets to the Soviets, with disastrous results.
